you're complaining about 5 minutes??

Yes, like any good fan would.
5 minutes is a lot of footage to be missing.

The average cuts are way more than that. In tv, for example, they easily cut 12 to 15 minutes of the movies, maybe even more in some cases..

They gotta make room for all those commercials.

yup.. and if you haven't seen the movie they're showing, you have no idea what you're missing, you just think they cut a couple of minutes for the commercials.
But reality is, in the avergae 2 hour movie, there are at least five segements of commercials, each one lasting about 4 full minutes.  That's at least 20 minutes worth of commercials... and the time frame given to movies on television is ridiculous, only about 2 hours for each.  So, any movie that's longer than two hours will get 20 minutes cut from it.

How stupid! They don't do that around here. How can that be even legal? Sad

I saw this last night. I stand definitely with CJ on this. Plotwise, I couldn't digest Duryea in it (though, as to be expected, he performs impeccably) his being in the barn at the right time I couldn't gulp and so his giving Hunter only a two shot gun: why, on earth? Hunter is wooden, can't play for life. Silva is the only reason the movie stands out: his best performance ever and one of the greatest villain on the screen. Gazzolo: not bad performance, but nothing memorable for Ramon Rojo's voice.
A doubt pervaded me diring the vision: is Nicoletta Machiavelli better than Rosalba Neri? I think she's prettier, but Rosalba sexier. Anyway is a close call.

I agree he can't act, but Hunter is anything but wooden. The man's jaw is constantly on the floor with all his screaming. He goes WAY over the top with his facial expressions.

Machiavelli is prettier (and more well endowed) than Neri. I do agree with you on her being less sexy. She doesn't seem to care about anything.

Did you get the feeling Silva and Hunter were having a screaming match throughout the movie?

By wooden I meant he has no control of his facial expressions. So it is not the right term.  You said it well. About the screaming competition, maybe you're right. But that means only that Hunter feels the overpowering presence of the other and thinks he can play the same game. I could have asked Lizzani: I met him two saturdays ago walking in the vicinity of his home here in Rome. I asked him about his autobiography announced in July but still nowhere to be found in the bookshops.
